There are a few things that bring a smile to just about anyone's face. I think bubbles are one of them! Every summer I sneak into the kids section at the Walmart and buy myself a new jar of bubble soap. Then, every morning, before work I stand out on my deck and blow bubbles for a minute or two. AHHHH... it just makes me happy!

What are some unique or special things you like to do with your family in the summer? Vacations are great, but summer is also full of simple activities. Biking, eating that first sweet piece of watermelon, going down the slide at the neighborhood pool, being amazed by fireworks. You know what brings you joy!

And that is what we are wishing you as you enter another summer.

You may feel like creating a family profile for your adoption matching process is daunting. But never fear! Your Snowflakes team has created some helpful tools for you. First of all, we have short video guide providing you with a good overview of what to include and what not to include.

We provide you with a paper instructions outlining the same. Our team is ready and willing to provide you with feedback and suggestions (at your request, of course).

But, would you REALLY like to simply outsource the creation of your family profile? Yes, you can do that. We recently spoke with Katie at Purl Adoption Advisory. She and her team provide a reasonably priced service to create your profile for you. They have several templates to choose from - they give you a simple outline to complete and you provide the photos. How easy is that?
